The *easiest* solution is to just say \alpha and \beta in the org file
instead of α and β. But biting the bullet and adopting XeTeX or LuaTeX is
probably the *best* way to go (he says without ever having used either...)

For those who stick with pdflatex, you can also use "α" directly in the org document, and define

#+latex_header: \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
#+latex_header: \declareunicodecharacter{03b1}{α}

Provided your file is indeed encoded in utf-8 (but why would you use any other encoding?)

This simply tells the compiler to bind "α" to the unicode character "greek small letter alpha" (U+03B1). If there is a lot of unicode in the document, XeTeX/LuaTeX are definitely better choices.
